Dear Abby Business address not your business By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: I have had very bad luck with husbands; One died, and I divorced two' H and now I am alone again. My thoughts keep going back to a very fine man I used to know between my second and third husbands. About a year ago I heard that his wife had cancer and it was just a matter of time. I would like to find out if she is dead yet. I have lost all contact 'with my friends in that town but I do have this man's business address. How can I let him know that I would enjoy seeing him again without having —" Things about' people and places Mr. and Mrs. John Mogk, 185 Winnebago Way are visiting in California.

The Mogks have been visiting friends and relatives in Pasadena, San Diego and LaJolla. Review household inventory annually NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. UP) To take a household inventory and make sure you have adequate insurance coverage on your furnishings, a Rutgers University-home-management specialist, Mrs. Cleo M. CottreU, suggests first setting the present value of an item at cost of replacement today. Then divide by the number of years you have used it. Such inventories should be reviewed annually.

MILWAUKEE DEAR MILWAUKEE: Information of this kind should be sought through a mutual friend. And there is no way a woman can let a man know that she would "enjoy seeing him again" without appearing aggressive— especially when she would enjoy it so much that she can hardly wait to bury his wife. * * * DEAR ABBY: It seems that the saying, "Girls fall for men who are heels" is true, yet no one has been able to tell me why. I know it is true in my case because every man I have fallen for has been a heel. They have all been rough, abusive, lying, cheating and strictly no good. But even knowing this, I can't stop loving them. Can you tell me why a woman goes right on loving a man like that? MAD ABOUT JOE DEAR MAD: There are many women who "go right on loving a heel" because they feel a deep sense of unworthiness, a need for punishment and, deep down, they feel that they don't deserve anything better. It is a "sick" love that thrives on punishment. * * * DEAR ABBY: I have a problem with a neighbor who has recently moved into my neighborhood. I knew her casually years ago, and I suppose that's the reason she has latched on to me. While she is a good-hearted soul, and I enjoy her company in small doses, I don't have enough in common with her to become the bosom buddy she is trying to make of me. I work and she doesn't, and the minute she sees my car in my driveway she runs over to visit. She also feels free to intrude when I have other guests. The situation is becoming very trying. I would tell her off once and for all, but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. I'd like to remain friendly with her without giving her the freedom of my house. Can this be done? WORKING WOMAN DEAR WORKING: That depends: If you have the courage to tell your neighbor that you have only a limited amount of time for "visitors" and please to wait until YOU call HER, you can retain your privacy, and perhaps her friendship in "small doses." On the other hand, if HER feelings mean more to you than YOUR privacy, prepare to surrender your privacy and don't complain. * * * CONFIDENTIAL TO "CONNIE'S SISTER, KATHY": Please send me your address. It is very important that I get in touch with you. Problems? Write to ABBY, care of Globe-Gazette. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. You Can Count on Us...

They come (or can be made) in a variety of materials from organdv to velvet. Teen-age party p anning problems are discussed but for the re- By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer Young people are planning for a big social season this winter. You can tell just by listening to a group planning a party — several parties. "Well, as many as we can cram in!" said one girl. What the girls were mainly concerned with, believe it or not, is etiquette. "Are people wearing long gloves now?" "Is .t more proper to send a written invitation than to phone?" With the new air of propriety that girls are assuming, they want to know "the real answers," as one girl puts it. Here arc some questions that occurred to the group who've decided that they can corral the whole social season, if they get an early start. But that poses problems. "If you plan a party and invite people early, and then get a wonderful invitation to do something else, can you legitimately call the shindig off jgiving an excuse?" without Daughter of Keys quadruplet on own WACO, Tex. wi — Brown- eyed Susan Torn may be the daughter of one of Baylor University's important students of the past, but she's proving that she can be a celebrity by herself. Her mother was Roberta Keys of the talented Keys quadruplets. Susan has been treasurer of Baylor's freshman class, a member of the Athen- ean Social Club, one of six outstanding freshman, campus May queen and a semi-finalist in Glamour magazine's Best- Dressed contest. 94TH BIRTHDAY ALTA VISTA—Frank Hilsman, with a son and Mr. and Mrs. observed his birthday Tuesday. He received many congratulations. Among the callers were another son, Al Hilsman and wife, and Mr. and Mrs. Clair Roethler of Charles City. A. No that wouldn't be cricket. But if it means that the other gathering would leave some of your guests in doubt, you do have a legitimate excuse for postponing the party. But don't cancel out for the season, if you want to keep your friends. "Is there any reason why you can't just invite all the boys and girls you want without making the number of each come out even?" to prepare everything in be so merry, membering.

(Everybody laughs at this point.) A. That would be pretty magnanimous and almost unheard of, and we're sure you wouldn't do it anyway. It could be risky! "Would it be too ridiculous to have a holiday party at midnight?" A. No, many young people give midnight breakfast parties. Teen-agers surely wouldn't find it ridiculous. But parents arc another matter and have the final say. It doesn't work if there are little children in the household who would be disturbed. "Is it a silly idea to give a party at h o m e suggesting formats? Girls love to dress up and if they get a pretty dress for Christmas, they'd love to show it off." A. Why not girls formal, and Activities reported for DUV's Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War met at the Library for a business session which included reports on various activities. Organization of the Daughters in Feb. 27, 1927, was reported for the Daughters Day program. Mrs. Clco Briar, now deceased, was the founder. Mrs. S. A. Bemis gave an account of Founders and Daughters Day observances of Aunt Becky Young Tent of DCS Moincs. Mr. and Mrs. Bcmis, Mrs. Art Rickens and daughter, Judy, Mason City, and Mrs. Fred Ilubcr, Clear Lake, attend cd. A. No reason at all, except boys informal? Even if a boy owns a dinner jacket, he has the some people just won't have a good time. "Do you think people should pay attention to girls who have I'mads on?' If a girl absolutely i hates another girl should you invite the two to the same party?' A. If they are the type to be idiscreet about their feelings, it matter. They might even mend the tear. But if one would make the other feel miserable or guests took sides, it coulc spoil the party. "What about the boy you invite to a party? Should you try expense of having it cleaned. [f he's a growing boy, he'll have to borrow a suit, unless he can afford a new one. Girls get quite a bit of wear out of evening gowns that can be remodeled, dyed and so on. But a boy's suit is pretty temporary. "If a boy brings alcohol Should you pretend you don't notice, or should you tell him. the truth — your parents are against it anc it will upset them if they find out?" A. Guests shouldn't bring al cohol into your home. Mrs. Art Rickens reported on coffee coupons turned in. Mrs. Bcmis told of getting a box uf men's used shirts ready to be sent to the Marshalltown Sol dicrs Home. The next regular meeting wil 0 Jan. 25 at 7 p.m., at the li brary.
